Subject: more please
I wonder which reel is missing the from the soundboards that are allegedly in the vault (I'm going to guess it's the last reel, the first reel, or the reel with the He's Gone ->Other One->Stella Blue)?

Subject: Dead & NRPS
This was near the last tour with the NRPS opening for the boys. Excellent He's Gone>Other One>Stella Blue. Saw a lot of shows around then,and before then. This was the only time I know of that the Riders performed Death & Destruction. Yeah they started to do in the 90's but back in the 70's only time.
i saw the riders perform that at cw post college a couple of months later. it was a rarity for sure.
Subject: Unleaked SBD for this show
"I suppose because it was never leaked from the vault. There is a board tape, as good as the rest of them from that tour, although it is missing one reel. I think we have 5 reels from this 6 reel show.

Subject: I'm the guilty one
It's too bad a better sounding tape hasn't surfaced over all these years because this show actually has some extraordinary highlights. It has (IMO) the single best He's Gone jam ->Other One segueway ever. Also, the Halfstep is possibly my personal favorite. But the He's Gone jam ... jeez! How can you overlook this? It's a simply wonderful example of Dead improvisation... a beautiful 'little' jam, never matched in all the versions I've heard. Yes, the weather was miserable and caused two breaks. But the band was playing very well, comparing very favorably with other shows around this time.
Subject: I Missed The Boat in '72
This, unfortunately, was the one show I saw in 1972. The weather was miserable, chilly and damp. There were sound and equipment problems that forced the band to take a few mini breaks. The performance, in a year of so many monumental shows, was inconsistent at best.
Listening to recordings of the many great '72 shows is a real treat, so at least I always have that.
Subject: Bad Sound, Burning Show
My second favorite Bird Song (Veneta is the best), is unfortunately on a poor quality tape. The tapers (Jerry Moore, I think), conserved tape by cutting into every song, and so missing a few notes of each.
The quality is good for an old, outside aud, but that ain't saying much. Great versions of GSET, Railroad, Jed and an early Half Step, make this one a keeper.
